Mount Meeker, left in the image above, just got a dusting yesterday, but Longs Peak, to the right and behind Meeker, got a bit more. Some of the mountains to the south and west got a goodly amount, too.

We’ve had very bad droughts and floods here in the Boulder, Colorado, area over the past few years. Here’s hoping for a nice, cold, regular snowy winter.
